You should be as intentional with who you let into your heart as who you let into your inbox. That’s why we are launching LoveStack, the first and only matchmaking service based on your reading preferences.
I was a beta tester for this product, and now I have four husbands￼. I can’t believe how well it works!￼
This is mean, very mean (IT'S APR 1, PPL). Going back to work now, lonelier.
This would be a great idea IF it were for matchmaking readers with what they want to read. So I could sign up for the service, fill out my likes and dislikes, and it would suggest Substack newsletters that I might enjoy. Might be a great way for some of the smaller Stacks to get some attention. (And yes, I get that the matchmaking part of it is an April Fools joke.)
AT LAST, MY PATHETICALLY LONELY NEWSLETTERING LIFE IS OVER AND I CAN STOP THIS TERRIBLE SEARCH FOR THE LOVE OF MY what?
Who cares about the date? Can't you see I'm writing a comment, so PLEASE stop interrup
Lulu this is some damn good writing right here! Read it out loud to my husband, he wants in now :))
Their exhaustion-reddened eyes met over a Zoom call about analytics dashboard errors.
"Hey girl, fancy a coffee?"
"I've already drunk enough today to give me heart palpitations. But why not?"
"I bet you give great header."
"Uh. Do you talk to every woman you meet like this?"
"I have a very high open rate. If you know what I mean."
"Unsubscribe and marked Spam."
What a cute, sweet, and good idea! I’m married, but am rooting for everyone who’s looking!
It would be nice to have someone to stare at while they read.
My pets have no interest in reading.
My turtle just eats his books.
You guys are the best.

Assuming for just a moment that it's NOT an April Fools' joke, the idea is intriguing, and I wish you (and those participating) great success. However, much as I might yearn to find the Martha Gellhorn to my Ernest Hemingway, my past experience with matchmaking services (since long before the internet!) has left me with such a jaundiced eye toward my own prospects with such endeavors that my own response must be "Mr. Tarlowe regrets..."
What a lovely idea. I just learned that Tulips are a symbol of enduring love and wrote about it the other day! My hubby's favorite reading preferences are the things I write, so I think that's a good sign. Twenty years, going strong.
I was ALL IN! And then -- oh, wait!!! Lol!!!!
Rhymes with love shack.
I went for it. Didn't even think about it being April 1. Filled it out: got matches. The joke must be that you can't change anything once you fill in the blanks—and what you upload (photo) and write (intro) doesn't actually post.
Damnit I always fall so hard on April Fools. I was headed to the link before I saw the comments haha. Edit: *oh wait it works!!*
